Beto O’Rourke Launches TX Gubernatorial Run with Renewed Pledge to Take Away AR-15s

Breitbart – by AWR Hawkins

Beto O’Rourke (D) officially launched his Texas gubernatorial run against Gov. Greg Abbott (R) Monday, and he is pledging, again, to take away AR-15 rifles.

Texas Tribune correspondent Patrick Svitek quoted O’Rourke saying, “I think most Texans can agree… that we should not see our friends, our family… our neighbors, shot up with weapons that were originally designed for use on a battlefield.”

The Tribune reports that Abbott has already dubbed the Democrat “Wrong Way O’Rourke,” suggesting his proposal to take AR-15s via a government-mandated buyback is the wrong way to approach Texans.

During the September 12, 2019, Democrat debate, O’Rourke looked into the camera and said, “Hell yes, we’re going to take your AR-15, your AK-47.”

O’Rourke made this statement in response to a question about supporting firearm confiscation.

He also said he had gone to a gun show in Conway, Arkansas, where he claimed numerous gun owners said of their AR-15s and AK-47s, “I would willingly give that up, cut it to pieces, I don’t need this weapon to hunt, to defend myself. It is a weapon of war.”

O’Rourke also opposes Gov. Abbott’s support of constitutional carry for handguns.

On June 16, 2021, Breitbart News observed Abbott signing constitutional carry into law, making Texas the 21st constitutional carry state in the Union.

The other 20 states are Alaska, Arizona, Arkansas, Idaho, Iowa, Kansas, Kentucky, Maine, Mississippi, Missouri, Montana, New Hampshire, North Dakota, Oklahoma, South Dakota, Tennessee, Utah, Vermont, West Virginia, and Wyoming.

  1. lets hope Texas teaches him a lesson

    and maybe this P.A.B. could be dumped into the worst neighborhood, empty handed while a riot (oops I ment rally, or peaceful protest ) has begun

  2. Reposting a comment I made earlier:

    So how many Hispanic votes would get, Beto ol’ jacka$$, when you fake your “Hispanic heritage”…. Because one thing Hispanics around here do not like is someone truly white priviledged scumbag like you claiming to be Hispanic! Even El Paso Hispanics (likely 70 percent of the population) have woken up to your crapola!

    And now changing the rest of the comment:

    Right… you don’t want relatives getting “shot up” but it’s okay to “shoot up” babies you’ll make sure get vaxxed… if not aborted…

  3. I highly doubt anyone in Arkansas told this lying POS scumbag they would willing “give up” their rifles. This scumbag cannot open his mouth without spewing lies.

    1. You are goddamn right they do, as do those fascist mother f-kers, like that treasonous piece of shit Trump who committed high treason in attacking our absolute 2nd Article right and spending the rest of his four years with his head up Netanyahu’s ass, serving the empire of Zion as their lapdog.
